  • Not every pregnancy is the same. Both of mine were at 35 weeks. If the doctors and ultrasound sheff tests look okay then they may adfle it. Our they won't. Now if your water has broke theres no turning back. Keep in mind, every day in womb is like two days outside.

  • You better not do anything to harm that baby because you are uncomfortable! Do not be the selfish and immature mother you are seeming to be! Please for your baby's sake don't do anything crazy!
    And news flash... pregnancy is uncomfortable! Please don't do anything drastic and call someone to get you through this.

  • You're nearly 2 months from being due. Chill.

    There are a lot of babies born at 33 weeks with health issues. "Probably" isn't a good enough guarantee. I'm sure the mothers of these preemies would give anything to have had their child fullterm - myself included.

  • Just remember you are not the only one in this situation. I am 35 weeks pregnant and I am so uncomfortable and I'm getting impatient and want to be done with it but much more than my pains and discomfort I want my baby to be healthy and ready to be here. So no matter how impatient I am I'm going to let nature take its course and when he is ready to come into this world I'll be waiting with open arms and it'll happen when it is suppose to. Just take it one day at a time and I know it seems to be taking forever but your new baby will here soon enough.

  • My 2nd son wwas born at 33 weeks. He stayed in NIcU for 2 weeks, was kept in an incubator and couldnt eat on his own. Had tubes through him and poked by needles constantly. I stayed day in and day out after i was released. Please think about how healthy it is to let baby "cook" a little longer.

  • My son was born at 34 weeks, and was in the NICU for over a week. The lady that had her baby the same day was 36 weeks and her baby died after being in the NICU. His lungs still weren't fully developed and he couldn't learn to breath on his own. I was in the hospital on bed rest for almost a month and a half before my son was born, and everyday I was like 'Please, let me have him!' When they did my c-section I was scared to death. No one got to see him for almost a day after he was born because they ere getting him settled in the NICU. I know you're tired and stressed, I understand but YOU DO NOT WANT TO HAVE YOUR BABY YET. You NEVER know what can happen. Carry it as long as you can. Even though you read that some babies that early are great, there are plenty out there who aren't and they don't make it. Don't play with fate and think it won't effect you badly. :/

  • 33 weeks is way early. I would never wish that upon my baby even if I was miserable. I am at 38 weeks and I am imagining I will probably go to 40 but we will see.
